Extended School Day Program

ESDP is one way to assure that your child is not only cared for, but also grows in academics, recreation, and socialization areas. Licensed by the Department of Social Services for Prekindergarten 3 through Grade 5 students, the program meets the needs of both the working family and the child who wants more socialization at the end of the day. 

Program Description

All children in ESDP benefit from supervised recreation with their friends. Older children have homework sessions, which allow families to enjoy their evenings together. Younger children participate in arts and crafts and other activities which allow them to play and learn in a relaxed environment. Nutritious snacks are provided by the school. Group recreation and sports activities encourage children to have fun and exercise in a safe and familiar setting.

Program Director

The Program Director for ESDP works closely with the Department of Social Services to ensure a safe and quality program for our children.

Program Hours

The academic year program is available on school days from 3:10 to 5:30 p.m. Currently, we are unable to offer before-school care and require families to enroll on a full- semester basis. There is no drop-in option. Adjustments to ESDP offerings for the second semester will be available in late October 2021.

Supporting Our Working Families

For many PK3-Grade 6 students, social and academic engagement extends beyond the typical school day through ESDP.
